Transcript DANGER Mow &***r Rumor has it Gilda is building her own shuttle craft to carry her bod back and forth to acapulco. She's there so often, Jerry thinks he's save money in the long run. He's just a little worried about using the FARMHOUSE smoke for fuel...even THAT much smoke couldn't fly a plane, could it? Miss eLPaso transplant to D is evidently doing well. Her storybook club is almost tops in town now, and so are her silly little tricks...isn't nice to have mem in your place LEGAL now? Speak easy about the two in Dallas who've made a sensational comeback all the way from oblivion, along with their toupee'd friend--they're doing well together. One of the mayoral candidates needs to look a bit closer at the s uppo rt coming from a ce rtain individual-he is disliked and distrusted in the gay community, and could very well be the reason for swaying the vote away from him. And a certain state legislator has a golden opportunity of getting the Gay vote if he handles hi sself carefully*. . " <T At that cocktail party last week <TSAWyou pour that Highland Mist into the J&B bottle. THAT'S why I drank out of the Highland Mist bottle that night. Did it freak you out, you cheap thing? Sporting a mustach, Delia still won't return to the stage. One last suggestion...how UNISEX drag, Delia? Terry (Barbra Streisand) still packs 'em in at RonSues's. Miss BOMBTHREAT is back in town again and still vocal about his innocence. Tiffany is back at the Bayou Landing in Dallas. Sahdji waa here and gone before Dennis could throw his curves., next try..Farmhouse.. " Speaking of Sahdji, she'll get $300. for her performance and $208. air fare from wherever she will be playing Halloween. The round-trip all expense paid prize to Hawaii, was Bill Bakers idea..Dennis wanted a more exotic place...like Galveston...etc. C.J. Harrington, MR. DAVID, has been hosted by the president of the Club Baths Chain in Miama recently; but when he gets to the BL here in Houston, he still has to pay to get in the joint! The mistress of the ranchy joint sent Bette Midler a telegram inviting same to her place for the evening; showing good taste, she didn't go, but did mention the name to the audience. We're waiting for Walter Price to re-appear. It's been a while, and it makes us nervous when we don't know what he's up to. The Silver Dollar Saloon is up to its old tricks again...now that EL GLASS STEINO is bringing dragon addicts out to the area, it is again employing otherwise "dead" queens...why did it wait so long this time...or is it content to take slough-off money. ...how are the roaches doing there these days? Well FANNY FARMER finally made it to europe and back. Now a world-traveler, she's hungrier than ever, and decides Americans are better eaters. And mother Chuck seems more lively these days now that she's sporting contacts...she doesn't have to squint anymore to see those tricks, and the crows fenet seem to be disappearing... An old issue of GBI magazine was floating around here recently. Will the 60's change its name to the 30's, now that half of 'em is gone? - When the state authorized the legal right turn on red, wouldn't you know Dallas would have its sign ready at almost all of its major corners saying NO right on red....that town dumbfounds the rest of the country. Why in heaven's name can't it let well enough alone? It's one of the few towns in the country that hasn't enough sense to turn off the crossing lights after a certain hour, when there is no traffic to speak of; it couldn't care less about conserving energy; it just wants to keep the police traffic courts busy! BROWNE BRECKENRIDGE, you must stop eating those beans; this whole town has been polluted lately, and I'm sure it couldn t be your mouth, so it has to be those beans....COME ALIVE again girl, we miss your sassy lip! Halloween Goblins, Fairies The one time of year that people have the opportunity for self-expression. It's upon us now, and Gays throughout Texas are busily planning outfits, needling and sewing hard away at costumes and regalia to bedazzle and delight their fellow compadres at the Ballas and Bars where the challenge they'll meet will be strong contention for crowns, trophies and cash awards, all on this, the most traditional Gay night of the year. The central core of Gay Life to a large majority is the Bar or Lounge. It's the focal point for most activities; meeting, playing, dancing, and re-acquainting with old friends. And this year Halo- ween promises to be the most exciting ever! Look at all the new places now open that weren't here last year. And the bar people well aware of the revenue such a night normally brings, are all gearing up to giving away literally thousands of dollars in order to capture your business that night. But one word needs be said for all this. However mercenary the individual bar owner(s) may seem to you for taking your money, it should be understood that this revenue helps them survive the year long, and gives you the year-round romping place you frequent. But truly, the pri ncipal reason for such gala prizes and awards and parties at these places is not so much to finance themselves, as most GIVE AWAY more than they take in that night, but rather, it is an expression of gratitude to you for your patronage, and should be seen in that light. And this year it will be rewarding at so many places. BUT..keep in mind when you choose whdre to spend Halloween....what did THAT bar do for YOU the rest of the year? COUNTERPOINT! In the last issue of the Nuntius a statement was made and was printed concerning the Dallas bars, in general. It was written by a contributor in what may have been good intention, but without real foundation. This counterpoint should set the record straight. FIRSTLY....if there is bickering between the bars, it is the gossip of the patrons making that happen and not the owners. In my last visit to Big D I saw no evidence of any rivalry even bordering on hostility. In fact, it was apparent even to the most objective observer, that the bars stand together more united now than ever in an attempt to bring to the days of the future a way Gays can go freely from one bar to another and have no fear of reprisals. The bar operators have been visiting one another, and have even attempted at one point to consolidate a program which wouldbring to fore a stabilized pricing of the beverages. This fell apart notbe- cause of lack of unity, but because the Gays started bellyaching about price-fixing, and gouging. Gays pay less for their drinks per capita in the better Gay bars, than they would have to pay in the straight bars; Gay bar cost of operation is usually considerably higher than straights, and in recent years, beer, liquor, etc. have all taken a sharp rise in cost. The committee which formed to align the prices did so with YOU in mind, so you could go from one place to another, and know what to expect to pay. Instead your sharp cries of alarm just set the long-needed program back onto a moulding shelf. This isn't San Francisco, perhaps, but a guild certainly has been working there quite well for a long time, and the beneficiary is the patron. It was never the intention of the bar owners to initiate a plan LETTERS TO THE EDITOR that would create a higher cost to DALLASITES. It was a plan based on realistic figures that should have worked. But while still in infancy, the shaky operators lost their nerve and backed off thinking customers would boy- cot them. That was a shame. BECAUSE the side-benefits you, the patron would have accrued, would have far outweighed the added cost of your bar drinks. For example, the free legal counsel to Gays who might be arrested in Gay bars, or wrongfully arrested on D.W.I, or other charges when leaving a bar, or arrested in a club for various sexual misconduct charges, etc. These items were the meat, the true substance of the guild planned for Dallas. It's time for Gay's to realize that bars are a business and to survive they have to make money. And to MAKE MONEY these bars have to charge reasonable prices. The proposed guild would have been strong help for the little bar who is forced to reduce its price to be competitive...but the larger bar can gobble it up by matching the price-cut and dealing in volume, can STILL MAKE MONEY! DDA bar owners guild is import ant to have, and Dallas should be FOR one NOT against. But there is no bickering between the bar owners today, and there probably won't be in the future, because if only one good thing arose from the attemgt at creating the Guild, was a mutual understanding of one another's basic problems. . - -Set-to the. forecaster oLglopjil.: who wishes people to think that bar operators are venemous lechers out to grab all they can from Gay patrons, I say, grab a bar stool at some straight club some night...you'll be glad to come home to a Gay bar. Dear Phil: Why can't you do something a bout the quality of your pix? Some are really bad! Can't you do something about it? Candy Candy: We've already improved the paper stock. The cameraman now needs some. Tell Bob C. to get on the ball with his film. Phil Dear Phil: What's going to happen at the Hi Kamp now that their best performers left? G.K. G.K.: Did it lose their BEST performers? From all reports that Klub still leads the pack in bods. Phil Dear Phil: That was some good looking front page last issue; is he a local boy? J.D. Houston J.D.: Yep! A contest winner sponsored by Club Houston here. Phil ^ H en i £ \ Dear Phil: Why do the bar owners always wait until the last minute to tell about events like Halloween and New Year's events? N.C.M. Austin Dear N.C.M.: I think it's because they like keeping people in suspense; perhaps some wait until the last to report so their competition will not have the edge. We hope in the NEXT issue, they'll start for the New Year's Eve plans. Phil Dear Phil: You might call me a closet case - I don't go to bars here at all, but I enjoy reading your paper. Is there any other place but the bars where I can buy a copy? Miss Closet Dallas, texas Closet: The Commerce Street News Stand in Dallas carries it. Page 23
